Extremely Vague Teasers from the Las Vegas Open

Seriously, lots of extremely vague stuff going on here. Going through the post, though:

OK, sure, a Khorne battletome for AoS, I guess AoS Khorne people will be excited about that.

Some kind of... game? Called Warcry? Designed by the teams who did Shadespire and Kill Team, so that's good, but that's literally all we know aside from "it's in the AoS Mortal Realms".

The tree elves warband for Shadespire, which is extremely beautiful and rockets right up to the top of the queue for my "Shadespire warbands I want" list.

Image

Shadowspear, the next battle box set for 40K, with Marines and Black Legion, but with all new models for both factions, which is a new (and cool) development. Looks like for-real Scout-type Primaris marines (sneaky, as opposed to the shock/terror troops that Reivers are), with camo cloaks and sniper rifles (and a camo cloaked Librarian), new Chaos Marine sculpts, new Obliterator sculpts, and a cool new spidery daemon engine.

Image

A new Sisters of Battle image, which looks like a Sister of Battle, but that's OK.

And finally a teaser trailer for the new Abaddon sculpt, which is apparently getting released in early March.
Feel free to call me Dave!

The spider thingie is cool. The new CSM sculpts look aces as do the Primaris Vanguard, (not to be confused with Vanguard Veterans, GW needs a better thesaurus). The new obliterator looks good too.
The new models in 40K box look amazing so far. Hopefully the stuff they haven't revealed is as good.

Thanks for sharing the link T.O.D :)

I like the Vanguard Librarian and the hand to the temple pose.

Not completely sold on the Primaris scouts, that’s what the 10th company is for :P But the new is the new I guess, and I the sculpts aren’t too bad.

The Chaos spider demon is a bit Warmachine Cryx, no?

I honestly thought GW would release a dedicated assault unit for a Primaris next. I’m surprised about the snipers. I guess they still have plenty of regular marines assault squad and veteran boxes they want to try and sell first.

I have to say that all this looks really nice. Even though the majority of it isnt particularly relevant to me personally, they're all nice sculpts. The sylvaneth, however, are moving up my to-buy list. Hopefully I'll have a chance to use them at some point...

Also, dat obliterator! I've lamented the crappiness of the current one for years, so seeing this gives me a tremendous sense of "aaaaah, that's what I'm talkin' about!" Job's a good 'un.

Ok, the Shadowspear box set is the box that is going to make me forget my resolution for the year. I love demon engines. The obliterator is what I think we’ve wanted for years. I could use a true demogauge for my 85 cultists. And the Primaris scouts look like a neat project.

I'm pretty excited about being able to field sniper scouts that aren't, you know, scouts. :lol: Those sculpts are showing their age. Plus I really like the "tacticool" direction they're continuing with these guys (having started with the reivers) - for whatever reason I'm especially liking the camo tarps over the tops of their backpacks.

It looks, from the box art, like there'll be another Vanguard unit with more typical carbine-type bolt weapons, although how they'll differentiate themselves from carbine-armied reivers will be interesting to see. Also it looks like we can expect a promoted and primaris-ed Lt. Tyrion in the box.

A Primaris Lieutenant you say? Sounds like a novel idea.

Well it's just the natural phasing out of small marine scouts. There's no real doubt that the future is all Primarus right? I will mourn the loss of terminators though, if there is no Primarus version

They're pretty...but what are they? Tree spirits? Elf ghosts haunting/possessing trees? I don't understand the design concept....

The AoS "closest analogue to Wood Elves in a full faction" faction, Sylvaneth, are indeed basically elf ghosts (lots of the wood elves who died when the World that Was got nuked, in fact) possessing trees, fighting alongside treemen, dryads and the like.

(There are also still actual living Wood Elves, now known as Wanderers, in the lore too - descendants of those who managed to escape full-on descruction.)
